dawn of time


3DChooseIt’s that moment when

You find the strength to say yes

To being happy

And in that moment

You accept the ownership

Of your own future

National Authors Day 2016

Wow! It’s HERE!  The day we recognize, celebrate and otherwise slather tons of love and affection on your favorite author!!  That’s right, it’s National Authors Day.

November 1st has been this special day since The United States Department of Commerce chose to recognize this day as National Authors Day in 1949

How can YOU participate?  So glad you asked…  PURCHASE, REVIEW, PROMOTE and otherwise, ELEVATE THE STATUS of the works of your favorite author (s).  Use the hashtag #NationalAuthorsDay all over social media and share the love.

Of course you knew this was coming… 

HERE is the LINK to MY BOOKS!!!  All but one are available in both Kindle and paperback formats.



We Are All So Thankful

It is November 1st and that means the November 2016 Edition of The Magic Happens Magazine is LIVE and available 24/7.

Each of our writers has several opportunities to help stuff each edition to the max. There is the Inspired To Do section, where you may wish to teach us to bake a holiday treat, or perhaps how to knit something warm and snuggly. Then we also have My View, where writers can leave a review for something, some service or someone they wish to suggest we check out. Naturally, we have space for a Personal Column, where you can highlight what YOU DO (if that’s what pleases you).  Of course there are also the prompts for the Theme Article of your choice. This month, those words were Playful, Intrusion and Simplify.

(I chose playful)

Here are the mastheads for the 4 articles I submitted.


I thank you, in advance for visiting the site, reading to your heart’s content and perhaps leaving a cheery comment for those who have written what it is that you read.  And how cool would it be, if YOU were one of THOSE WRITERS for the NEXT EDITION… Be sure to reach out to our fearless leader, Kathleen Anne McCarthy via her magazine email: kat (at) themagichappens (dot) com and let her know you wish to join our merry band of writers!!!
